The College of Liberal Arts and the School of Fine Arts at the University of Minnesota Duluth invite the public to a special pre-Halloween event.
At 7 p.m. Oct 19 — doors open at 6 p.m.the school holds its special showing of the 1922 horror film classic “Nosferatu” by W. F. Murnau.
This silent film will be accompanied on the organ by UMD Department of Music Professor Justin Rubin.
Following the event, Prof. Rubin will briefly talk about the movie score, and we’ll have a short presentation on the film’s history, given by Dr. Gesa Zinn from the UMD Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures.
The movie is unrated — you are welcome to bring the entire family, but we’ll have to advise you that this IS a horror film after all!
The event will be held in the Egyptian Theater of the Duluth Masonic Center, 4 West Second St., Duluth.
Admission is free but donations are welcome.
Seating is limited, and tickets will be available at the door.
The theater seats a maximum of 300 people. The Egyptian Theater is a unique landmark in the city of Duluth, and its Kimball pipe organ has recently been restored.
Popcorn and soft drinks is available.
Parking is available at the Masonic Center, in nearby parking ramps and at the Duluth Teachers Credit Union, directly across the street from the temple.
